2019 Season Outlook
Redshirt freshman Cameron Pieper enters the 2019 season hoping to earn playing time on Nebraska’s special teams’ units. Pieper is a long snapper who joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on from Lincoln Southwest High School. Pieper will compete for action behind senior Chase Urbach, who handled the majority of the snapping duties over the second half of the 2018 season.
In the classroom, Pieper earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in each of his first two semesters.
Pieper redshirted in his first year at Nebraska in 2018, when he was able to learn from a pair of veteran Husker long snappers.
